If baby arrives when the leaves are changing color, you might want to consider the name Sorrel. A gender-neutral name of Old German origin, Sorrel means “reddish brown,” a term most commonly used to describe the distinctive coat color in horses. It may also be in reference to the sorrel plant, whose sour and lemony flavor allows it to be used as both a herb and a vegetable in the kitchen. This autumnal moniker is an ideal one for parents who are looking for a name that will subtly nod to mother nature and all her wonders!
